91 – True Colors
I was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder in 2003 and have been attending Riverbend ever since. I have learned coping skills, the importance of taking medications, and developed a strong support system with friends and peers. I was elected this year to serve as a NAMI board member and hope to make a lot of positive changes in my community. Art has helped to relax me and I enjoy participating in this art show every year and showing people good things I can do despite having a mental illness.
